Love means never having to say "I'm in over my head"

A lady at work recently had her entire kitchen renovated. Nic is in the early stages of going through the process as well.

I mentioned it to my wife.

Suddenly there is graph paper and my big measuring tape on the bar. A night out might mean dinner and then a leasurely stroll through the hardware store.

I'm not too worried about it, because we're certainly not rushing into things. We've lived in the house for 15 years, and before the first was over we'd replaced the appliances and a few years later I redid the wallpaper. Other than that - nada.

So we've had time to dream and consider and ponder and decide, and of course we disagree on several key points, but nothing important enough to turn into a major fuss.

I expect I'll be starting phase 1 here in the next month or so, which is removing the "bar" and cabinets between the kitchen and dining room and replacing them with a new set of cabinets along another wall.

Step at a time, and it's not so hideously expensive that way as long as you don't do something stupid like total up the receipts.

1 Sounds like fun! Er... just remember to put up the new cabinets before you take down the old ones!
